Own Words

I'm fat, fearless, raunchy, and have a laugh that echoes for miles. In other words, I'm every Asian fetishist's worst nightmare, also known as the Geisha School Dropout (http://geishaschooldropout.typepad.com/).

I'm also a software programmer by day and mom to two lovely quappa children (3/4 Asian, 1/4 Amurcan).

My parents tried their damnedest to raise me to become a very straight-edge Good Korean-American Girl who played the piano charmingly; who was skinny and gorgeous and fashionable, yet not vain and deflected all compliments; a woman who hummed Verdi whilst proofreading her husband's PhD thesis on nuclear physics while a kimchi casserole is bubbling away on the stove...while vacuuming (and praying to Jesus).

Suffice it to say, they were dismayed when I turned out the way I did. I think my soul slid into the wrong body, and I really should have been born to experience America during the 60's, armpit hair flowing in the breeze, permanently stoned, fucking all the men and women within a mile radius. I love crunchy hippie things like composting, organic gardening, man-bashing, Noam Chomsky, protesting, etc. So basically I can become a present-day Oakland/Berkeley lesbian. There's still hope yet.

If for some reason you would like some parenting advice from me: Drink the miyuk guk, it actually helps. Everything else your mom says is antiquated BS though, so don't do anything that isn't guaranteed to help you feel better.
